Soul man

Here is a quick and easy embellishment trick with stuff I am sure you have in your stash.

Masking tape
Non stick sheet or wax paper
Stamps The yard stick is from Ma Vinci, The clock is from Non Sequitur and I do not know what company made the stencil letter stamps.
acrylic paint (I used black)
  1. Place strips of masking tape side by side on a non stick sheet.
  2. Stamp images using black acrylic paint.
  3. Let dry.
  4. Peel off the tape and place on page. The word "soul" was printed on tape that was over lapping so I peeled it off as one big "sticker."

The rest of the page

The background was purple acrylic paint brushed on a page. Once dry super sparkle lumieres paint was sponged over it. Then images of yard sticks, clocks and rulers were stamped using lumiere hi lite blue and black.

The main image was stamped on a recycled tag using black permanent ink. The image is from After Midnight Stamps

Acrylic paint on stamps!? Great idea. This looks like fun. I'll try it. Love the circles with stamped letters on the journal pages. Your dog looks sweet on the page too. - Jeanne in Hillsboro
